Christian McCaffrey Plays Piano to Honor U.S. Military | Off the Field

On this year's Memorial Day, Christian McCaffrey displayed his talents on the keys to honor the U.S. military. The San Francisco 49ers running back performed an acoustic version of Zach Bryan's "El Dorado" alongside his future brother-in-law, pianist Gus Culpo.

The song "El Dorado" has a special significance, since McCaffrey teamed up with the Grammy-nominated country music star to support America's military community through music.

Upon the release of the track, Bryan announced that all of the profits made from the song will be donated to McCaffrey's 23 and Troops foundation.

Before Bryan became one of country music's fastest-rising stars, he was a member of the U.S. Navy for eight years. McCaffrey's 23 and Troops foundation focuses on helping U.S. active-duty military, veterans and frontline workers overcome trauma and PTSD. According to the foundation's website, 23 and Troops plans to bring together cutting-edge treatments in medicine and wellness to assist special-operations veterans suffering the lingering effects of PTSD or brain injury.

"Thank you for your service to every woman and man who struggles every single day," Bryan tweeted. "You're seen and cared for and respected."
